LONG READ : How to Celebrate International Women’s Day Without Ruining Everything +Don’t shop unless you’re shopping at female run businesses
+Donate to organizations and political groups that fight for women
+Show your support in your clothing, pins, banners you hang on your desk
REMEMBER : With all your signage and verbiage (at protests and in the office) make sure you’re being trans*-inclusive and if you’re unsure, then ask (this applies every single day)
Yes, this is about cis body/health rights, but we also need to be fighting for trans* body/health rights. They are equally important and both can mean life or death.
Be a visible ally to all of our sisters (and remember that doesn’t just include our cis-ters). If you’re an employer, try to give your female employees the day off.
If you are in a position to do this (especially if you aren't a women), cook for other women and their families who don't have the privilege to strike.
If women aren’t the sole caretakers in your home, you can protest household chores and cooking for others. AGAIN only if you have the privilege to do this.
If you do have the privilege to take the day off tomorrow, do it and make sure to attend rallies and marches to stand up for those who can’t miss the day. Note: don't miss work if doing so will shift the weight to other women in your company who can’t afford to miss the day. That’s no way to honor your sisters.
Basically, be thoughtful. Be loud. Use your privilege to raise up other women.
We run the world if we stand together. #internationalwomensday#adaywithoutawoman#womensday#resist
